A Look at Those Wacky and Wild Proposition Bets

Super Bowl hype week. It's great news and it's bad news. The great news is that we get the biggest game in the NFL this Sunday finally. The sad part is that after Sunday, millions of fans will wander aimlessly on their remote on Sundays wondering what the hell to watch.

Sports Betting Money

It also means the biggest sports betting event of the year. Football is the most popular sport to bet on and it culminates with the Super Bowl. People who may not normally bet on football feel the urge to put a little cash on this game. The regular gamblers might put a little extra cash on this game because it's the last one. All in all Las Vegas takes in a lot of money.

Along with betting on who will win, it's the time of year for proposition bets. These are like side bets. You don't need to know about how many sacks the offensive line has given up per game. You don't even need to know what a field goal is to wager on a prop. That's what makes them so fun and unique. There are so many different ways to bet the Super Bowl that it's crazy. Reading through the long list makes me want to rip my eyes out. It's that long. Just like Super Bowl media day has become a circus. Super Bowl prop bets have a sideshow that you have to at least look at.

Here are some of the most interesting prop bets that you can actually win money on.

And of course one of the most popular bets.

Will the coin land on heads or tails?

So many chances to win money or have your ass handed to you. Alot of them are so silly that it's just fun to throw a little money on certain prop bets.

Have I made a wager on a prop bet? Of course I have. I won't divulge it yet because I don't want to jinx myself. If I do win it, I will mention it in my Super Bowl write up. It's just not one of the ones listed above. If you do decide to bet on the Super Bowl, I wish you good luck and win some damn money. Don't be embarassed what you actually bet on to win money.
